Bournvita days

when we munched on Uncle chipps
& Dalda was the oil
besides the macchhar dani
we burned a Tortoise coil

even inside, it wasn't safe
some buzzing devil would smile
but it would soon be crushed
by clapping hands a while.

those were the days of Cinthol
or if you were into sports - Lifebuoy
& free hot-wheels that came with Maggi
was the most sought after toy.

people say now, we cut the greenery
which really upset the Chinkara
& then Salman didn't check the expiry
on his Hamdard ka tonic Cinkara.

to think of it - Hamara Bajaj
was a message in national Integration
for the people with no kaamkaaj
queueing for license-quota-ration

things are not much different today
aunties are not any leaner
just instead of Rooh-afza
they hand us a toilet cleaner

is that why India is shining? I dunno
the cola is yet to trickle to the last row
we may have big bars,the 'smallest' cars
I hope broad minds & roads will follow

its true that a lot of change
was brought about by Mannu-ji
but do u think its any strange
that I still want my Parle-G ?
